Hi. I too am interested in donating to this organization. I can't find anything negative in the news. They have been in business for quite a while and I have emailed three of their alleged clients (have not gotten any replys yet). I would be interested in what you hear. Would you contact me?Hi,
Has anyone recently donated to Florida Veterans Assistance Association? I have a timeshare that I want to get rid. Is this a legitimate company. They want me to pay $550.00 upfront. Please Help.
In regard to both of the above posts, I suggest first verifying that FVA will, in fact, accept the particular timeshare "offerings" at all in the first place. Donations of unwanted timeshare weeks are both useless and burdensome to ANY charity unless they can promptly turn that "donation" into actual cash by a quick turnaround sale. I suspect that in these times, charities may become more and more selective, since they are not looking for any albatrosses around their neck (....instead of around yours). Good luck.Hi.

FVA asserts that this fee includes all closing costs, which they pay when they subsequently "unload" a donated timeshare. Not much more than a year ago, when I had some correspondence with them, that fee was just under $400. I declined to proceed and just sold that particular timeshare myself for peanuts, with buyer paying their OWN closing costs. Writing a check in addition to making a donation of something of value just somehow didn't sit well with me, personally.This to me screams SCAM!!!!!!
With all due respect and in the interests of full disclosure, isn't the "not very positive" FVA info (and numerous other, separate posts about various other charities) over on TS4MS actually your own postings, just placed under a different user name over on TS4MS?I found info about this group on another thread as well that didn't seem very positive.. http://www.timeshareforums.com/forums/transferring-ownership/80879-donating-your-timeshare-charity-did-work-you.html
There is info there regarding several different charities.
